Mike Love discusses Feel Flows set and a 60th anniversary

On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, David Beard spoke with Mike Love about the 50th Anniversary of The Beach Boys’ Surf’s Up album. That interview, along with interviews from the other members of the group, appears in the Summer 2021 edition of Endless Summer Quarterly.

During the discussion Mike shared a few tidbits about the upcoming Feel Flows sets and his thoughts for possibilities as they relate to The Beach Boys 60th Anniversary.

Mike Love: There is a lot of diversity on the Feel Flows set. There’s a lot of types of songs and music that have been less appreciated than our well-known recordings. I think it’s going to be of big interest to Beach Boys’ fans and it will reflect a very broad-based appreciation of the different kinds of thought processes that went into the creation of the music and the songs that were products of the movement of society and the growth of The Beach Boys creatively as a band.

We are practicing “Feel Flows” because we want to perform it on the tour. “Don’t Go Near The Water” should be easy … maybe (even) “Student Demonstration Time” and we should perform “Add Some Music To Your Day” especially because of the California Music version that you produced.

What I’m hoping we’ll do is a really neat television special that is a recorded event with all of us together; that’s something I’d look forward to doing.

Most bands are lucky to have one hit. Really lucky two hits. Here’s a bunch of guys from Hawthorn California who launched a phenomenon that’s still going. Wow. I have every Beach Boys album from Surfin Safari to That’s Why God Made the Radio, plus several solo albums. Plus have seen them 14 times and Brian Wilson twice so far. These are some of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. Happy 60th. Beach Boys, and Happy 50th Surfs Up. “Columnated Ruins Dominoe.
